  • 1/3

    cup canola oil

  • Salt to taste

  • 2

    heads Bibb lettuce torn into 2" pieces

Directions

In a small nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, lightly toast the mustard seeds, stirring often, until golden and fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the vinegar and let cool for about 5 minutes. Transfer the vinegar mixture to a small bowl and whisk in the mustard and honey until blended. Slowly whisk in the olive oil and then the canola oil. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper. In a large salad bowl, toss the lettuce with half of the vinaigrette and divide among 4 chilled salad plates or bowls. In a small bowl, toss the crabmeat, parsley and chives with 3 tablespoons of the remaining vinaigrette until well blended, and season with salt and pepper. Divide the crabmeat among the salads and garnish each with grapefruit and avocado. If desired, drizzle the salads with any remaining vinaigrette. Serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 servings.
